I've used these numbers and set it up as described (Slider, User Curve, 0 - 6 - 16 - 24 - 33 - 43 - 57 - 67 - 80 - 90 - 100) on each throttle axis'. It seems to me that this custom curve has you at 100% throttle before you hit the AB detent. I thought that Mil power was 85% of the range and 100% would be AB5?

I like the curve but it seems that up against the detent while flying the pattern you are barely able to maintain AoA without going into AB1 with fuel at 9.0 or higher.

I'm not totally into modifying the AB detent to let you push through it. I have a #200 serial # and I've gotten used to pulling up on the handles. The only module that I fly without the detent is the A-10C.

I started with these base numbers, they worked for me. I had to jimmy the ones in the f15 a little bit. It took me a while to figure out the 2nd number is the one you need to move up or down to find the sweet spot for your particular throttle. Once I did, it's working perfect.

If you don't want to modify your original detent to make it 'push through' instead of 'lift over' then here is the file to 3d print a new detent with modified stops.

This is what I'm using with a 3D printed part from Shapeways, works perfectly for the Hornet

This works for me with the Shapeway detent mod.
